Week #08 preview: Doha, Bogota

Doha (QAT), Tier I, $2,500,000
WTA Tour goes to Qatar for the first Tier I of the season. Big prize money always ensures a great field and this year won't be an exception. 8 of the Top 10 players and 24 of the Top 30 will be present. Russians Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova and Serbians Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic will be the top favorites, but players such as Venus Williams and Anna Chakvetadze must be always taken into account.

Bogota (COL), Tier III, $185,000
The second South-American tournament will feature almost the same players as Viña del Mar last week. Last week winner Flavia Pennetta will be again the top favorite for the title.
